''You'll be allowed one transfer every 90 days''

Just when one thinks "hey, it's been a long time since I heard of some ridiculous move made by companies...", micro$oft jumps in to help...

I find the Office 2007 ribbon interface (incl 2010 and 2013) much more efficient. Tried using OO the other day (which has a similar interface as 2003) to be cluttered, hard to find the correct button etc.
Have they made is possible to open .docx on 2003 btw?
